​The City of Canterbury Bankstown has been named the state’s Food Surveillance Champion by the NSW Food Authority.

Council’s Environmental Health Team was recognised for its outstanding performance in food surveillance, especially for the implementation of its innovative allergen awareness education campaign called ‘Scores on Schools’, and the team’s commitment to improving food safety compliance at the month-long Ramadan Nights food festival.

Mayor Khal Asfour said he’s proud of the achievement.

“However, this is not the first time CBCity has been recognised for going above and beyond when it comes to the health and wellbeing of residents and visitors,” he said.

“Council was named Environmental Health Team of the Year at the NSW Environmental Health Excellence Awards in 2018, for the implementation of the Scores on Schools and Hygiene and Infection Controls programs, as well as its ongoing support of local work experience and TAFE students.

“We won the NSW Food Authority’s Food Surveillance Champion Award in 2013, for our free Safe Food Handling Workshops for local businesses. These are held in multiple languages and have involved more than 500 businesses to date.

“We were also the first council in NSW to develop an ongoing Hygiene and Infection Controls Program, which we launched last year.”

Scores on Schools, based on the Scores on Doors (food shop) program, is aimed at safe food handling and allergen management in schools and child care centres. The program will be expanded this year, with the introduction of tailored workshops and fact sheets for residents from non-English speaking backgrounds.
